  1. The only memory I have of this school …is a bad memory that forever changed me…it was I think 1965 or 66… Mrs. McDonald..it was my very first day of school…I only knew Spanish…I was totally humiliated and the students were encouraged by this teacher to laugh at me. I never understood why her being black woman would do this to another minority. Sorry I just had to tell someone.
